#388681 Switching to Olympus - a few specific questions

Posted by JMartel on 23 October 2017 - 07:23 PM

Although you don't have plans for the 9-18mm at all, I would not recommend buying it. The Panasonic 7-14mm is better in every way. I don't have issues that the other person posted about where it doesn't perform that great. Mine works quite well. I plan on picking up a fisheye for wider angle in the near future.


For Macro, you really are better off getting the 60mm. Switch to the 12-50 on days when you don't want to do strictly macro. The 12-50mm fits in the same port as the 60mm macro, so you don't need any additional ports for that, just a zoom gear. 


I have an E-M5mkII in a Nauticam Housing. The 60mm macro is on my camera the most, with the 7-14mm for when I shoot wide angle.

#387001 Zoom Gear for Panasonic 7-14mm Lens

I made a 3D file to have a zoom gear for my Panasonic 7-14mm lens printed and figured I'd share it here. It's for a Nauticam housing. Fit on the lens is a bit tight and it seems to be a little on the longer side, but it works as is. If you have a 3D printer or know someone with one, it's a good way to save money over buying from Nauticam.





#383144 Lenses for Palau

Posted by JMartel on 14 April 2017 - 07:52 AM

I will be going to Palau/Peleliu next February for roughly 2 week (shore based) and I'm trying to decide what lenses/ports would be worth bringing along. I have an Olympus E-M5mkII (0.5x equivalent full frame lens size) and was planning on bringing my 60mm Macro and my Panasonic 7-14mm rectilinear for wide angle. My biggest question was whether or not it would be worth bringing a fisheye lens with me? I don't currently own one, but was going to be buying one within the next year or so. If it's not worth bringing to Palau, then I can spread out purchases a bit more.
